Honoring Our FATHER with our obedience pt 1
Our Heavenly Father loves us all so much and when He starts a conversation with us and brings up something that needs to be changed in our lives; we should feel blessed and loved. He isn’t the condemner and He isn’t condemning us; AND we shouldn’t feel condemned at all…In fact He is loving on us and we should realize that freedom and revelation has come to us. One of the responsibilities and jobs of The Holy Spirit; is to teach us how to walk and talk like Jesus… and to reveal to us the very nature and character of Our Heavenly Father. Walking, talking, living and operating like Him; in every way and throughout every day.
So when He starts to talk to us about an area in our life that needs fixed, changed and/ or removed out of our lives; it is because it is hindering our relationship with Jesus and our Heavenly Father…and You / I my friend, are being called sons and daughters of The Most High. He truly considers us His sons / daughters and His correction is so that we can change and become more like Him and His ways!!!
Heb 12:5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:
Heb 12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
Heb 12:7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
Heb 12:8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.
Heb 12:9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?
Heb 12:10 For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.
Heb 12:11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.
